Published 1985


258. HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI: WHAT PEOPLE EXPERIENCED

Three short works are shown which reveal in powerful and touching
reality what it was like to endure the atomic bombings in Japan.
First is a 22 minute documentary, Hiroshima-Nagasaki," which
contains movie footage in the cities after the bombs exploded.
The documentary is so explicit and powerful that it was
suppressed by the U.S. government for many years. Next is a
short work containing the drawings of children and adults
depicting what they saw and experienced. Finally, an animated
film is presented which is shown in Hiroshima each year to school
children. Also provided is a review of a book which recounts the
attempts by the American government to suppress the full details
of the realities of what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
